AND THE WINNERS WERE. . .
ELKINS RANCH G.C. - 11/01/2018: The Ranch course was exceptionally challenging this day yielding nary a single sub-80 score,
just 3 in the 80s, 7 in the 90s, and another 6 players at 100+.

CAMARILLO SPRINGS G.C. - 11/08/2018: A loyal cadre of 10 stalwarts bravely struggled in the brutal windy conditions to finish and post any kind of acceptable score which was then followed by the arrival of the threatening fire storm (The Hill Fire) that triggered many harrowing escape accounts until all eventually got to their home base safely. The recount of the day's results shows Ron Troncatty topping the money list at $58 garnered from 2 of the 4 birdie payouts, the Super Low Gross award, a tie for Low Net and Partners 2nd. The two remaining birdies were scooped up by Bob Stone worth a total of $43 when added to his tie for 2nd Low Putts.

OLIVAS LINKS G.C. -11/15/2018: The tally sheet reveals 10 competitors "in the money" out of the field of 13 who teed it up.

Craig Fehrman won the Low Putts, picked up a one-third share of the birdie booty, along with a Partners 3rd for his $21 haul. Each single birdie was worth an even $20 and that's what Jimmy Dodds accepted for his solo tweeter. Mike Gannon posted 2nds in both Porter Gross & Low Net along with Partners 1st to earn $16. The Porter Low Gross award and final 1/3 share of the birdie monies sent $15 to Tom Knickerbocker.
